  1. Sounds like a horrible experience. I’m sorry.

    At the risk of introducing an unwanted political component (so I won’t be offended if you delete this comment), I went through a similar experience a few years ago, and it’s why I will never again visit the US.

  2. I have gotten “pulled aside” a couple of times. Lord knows why; often it’s they dislike my travel overnight bag, so I get the “did you pack your own luggage?” (yes, I know, I probably should have been neater, officer–I just think it, don’t say it) and similar questions. I have learned to just take a deep breath, relax, and let them wand me and ask their questions. Last thing I want is to end up on some YouTube video; it is still an unnerving experience, which is why I avoid traveling by air if I can. Sorry to hear of your experience. Maybe it is us being librarians.

    Anyhow, hope the rest of your travels go better. Best, and keep on blogging.

  3. Wow! How very unfortunate. I know security has been increased due to after effects of 911, but they seemed quite rude! Sorry to hear about your experience!
